From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.Every Saturday.

The Festival will feature both mystical, stately longsword and vigorous rapper sword dancing, with live music on fiddle, accordion, and other instruments.

Viola and Sebastian, twins separated by a shipwreck, experience loss and love on the shore of Illyria. Disguised as Cesario, page to the lovesick Duke Orsino, Viola searches for her lost brother, while the Countess Olivia mourns the loss of her own. When the Countess meets the handsome young page, desire replaces grief – along with a case of mistaken identity. Throw in the magic foolery of the jester, Feste, the raucous antics of courtiers Sir Toby, Maria, and Sir Andrew, and the madness of the high-strung puritan Malvolio, and Shakespeare creates a bitter-sweet tale of laughter and longing, dark humor, and above all, maddening, harrowing love.

Brooklyn-based Antibalas’s funky sound is inspired by Fela Kuti’s Nigerian Afrobeat grooves with a healthy dose of American soul music and Latin dance beats. Every Antibalas concert is a spicy mix of funk and jazz, with rhythms propelled by drums, horn, guitar, and bass. With a name derived from the Spanish word meaning “bulletproof,” Antibalas’s “jumpy juju guitar rhythms, spiritual-ancestral Yoruban drum patterns, and emphatic call-and-response choruses” (Los Angeles Times) lift audiences out of their seats.

40 years ago, The Last Waltz was a Thanksgiving Day farewell gathering of musicians including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison. They picked the title, Heroes Last Waltz, so artists around the world can contribute to a diverse set of views as a way of removing walls for the common goal of unity. The passing of icons like David Bowie, George Michael and Prince along with Trump’s rise to President have left a void. This is our response and a step towards restoring hope and progress.The gallery invited artists to share their inspiring character animations, drawings, or writings to spread a positive message. Here are the selected artists who will help lead with positivity into the upcoming battles:Nina Kuriloff, Elana Goren, Blond Jenny, Eddie Botha, SeUn Lee, Chris Yee, Seungmin Kang, Lido, Steve Cavallo, Nicholas Kunz and Elizabeth Flore.Artist and musician Chris Yee will be joined by his band, MHZ, at our opening for an acoustic performance.
